latino and angela rye is director of impact and a political strategist. welcome to both of you. maria, if i can start with you, what do you think the president is hoping to achieve by hosting such a range of organizations and companies to discuss this issue? >> martin, what the president recognizes is comprehensive immigration reform will take all efforts, all hands on deck. it's going to be grassroots, labor, business, and the only way he can do that is make sure everybody is on board and very clear on what the request is at hand. but more importantly, the fact that he was able to get in one day not only labor but he was also able to get business around the same table during these discussions demonstrates business recognizes they need to move fast on immigration because his window of time is short to pass this legislation. >> angela, today speaker john boehner and leader eric cantor were both asked if they plan to vote for senator marco rubio's broad plan supported by senate democrats. see if you can find a straight answer from either man. listen to this. >> i want to applaud senator
me now is richard wolffe and angela. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you. >> it's a hard sell but republicans seem to crumble on a bunch of these issues. what's going on? >> they are picking fights they cannot win. they are picking fights about defense secretary who is always going to have enough votes. yes, they mess around with him. he was always going to get confirmed. it's a bit like the sequester. they have to cave. the pressure is too intense watching this unfold. medicaid dollars, really, are you going to have governors with the supreme court saying you have a choice. governors are going to turn down dollars that make them more popular. they are not picking smart fights here. that leads to a bigger question. will they ever break out of what bobby jindal call the stupid party? that's the thing they are facing right now. >> angela, you work the hill. you know it better than most people in this town. you were there in 2010 when the tea party movement was at its height and had a lot of strength. salon says that not only do the republicans seem to be cav
and an opinion writer for the "washington post" and angela reid, principle of impact strategies and msnbc contributor susan dellpurseo. >> you come in on president a days. let's dive in and get to work talking about this leaked proposal that came out. angela, i want to start with you. we have the timeline here and if we look at it, the president was scheduled to go to las vegas on january 29th and give his first policy speech of the second administration but we see that on the 28th the bipartisan group of senators, they came out with their plan trying to trump the president to seem ahead of him. is this a way in the chess match with the leaked reform bill getting out there a way for the president to get the ball back. >> i think if we stay a step back and think about what was in the leaked draft proposal, it is not that being showing. anyone listening to the state of the union address or anything else this administration has said about immigration, it is not a rouge surprise. we should be real about where we are and when you look at the senators bart of the bipartisan coalition, you think

. that same day, florida governor rick scott appoints angela curry to lead a special investigation. the next day, president obama speaks publicly about the case for the first time. >> if i had a son, he'd look like trayvon. >> reporter: march 24th, a new black pan per that's right offers a $10,000 reward for zimmerman's capture. two days later, trayvon martin rallies are held across the country demanding zimmerman's arrest. april 11, zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder and turns himself in. bond is set at $150,000 and three days later, he walks out of jail in the middle of the night only to return six weeks later when a judge revokes his bond after prosecutors say zimmerman and his wife lied about being poor at his bond hearing, failing to mention hundreds of thousands of donated dollars from supporters. this time zimmerman's wife is also arrested, charged with perjury. july 6th, zirmmmmerman's releas now on $1 million bond and goes into hiding. zimmerman appears on fox news. >> is there anything you might do differently in retrospect, now that time passed a little bit? >> no, sir
news political analyst angela mcglowan. the seminan ticks are interesting to me. everybody calls it immigration reform. it is really immigration repair. the system that ronald reagan supposedly fixed back in 1986 is badly broken. >> it is immigration repair and the system is broken and i'm glad we're having this hearing today. working in washington, d.c. as long as i have, you are hearings for show, so members of congress can say, hey, we're doing something about this and we're studying and you actually have hearings that get down to the nuts and bolts of the problem. out of everything the president talked about last night, all the items with his campaign state of the union speech immigration reform can happen because the problems as grassley pointed out. jon: there seems to be the momentum though on capitol hill to get something done. >> yes. jon: you have this gang of eight senators who put forward a proposal. you have the white house interested in getting something done. >> even though this type of policy has been very controversial with jan brewer of arizona going against fed
who have been courageous in sharing their own stories of gun violence. mary johnson, angela, maya, police sgt mike duzan, i look forward to spending time with each of you tomorrow afternoon. i want to send my condolences to the people of oakdale, minnesota, who experienced a horrific shooting last night. i spent some time traveling around minnesota in the aftermath of the shooting in sandy hook, and what i have learned is that we can honor minnesota's culture of responsible gun ownership while taking some reasonable steps to make our communities safer. gun-control is a central part of this. i support a ban on assault weapons and a limit on the size of magazines. i also believe that we need to improve and expand our background check system. billions of people because of our background check system have been denied guns. it seems like there is a consensus being built around the idea that we should do background checks on all purchases of guns. part of improving the background check system involves updating mental health records in the national database and, of course, improving acce
. >>> maryland governor martin o'malley and prince george's county state's attorney angela also brook are testifying today. the state's attorney general has had to drop charges in at least eight cases last year because the statute of limitations expired. >>> a toy gun has landed a local 10-year-old in a lot of trouble. police say the fifth grader at macarthur elementary in alexandria was riding home on the school bus he showed the toy gun for another student. police claim the boy did not say it was fake. the other student's parents reported the incident to police. school officials fouled the toy gun in the boy's bag when he came to school yesterday. the child was arrested and charged with brandishing a well on and he is suspect ended for the time being. >>> a judge will hear arguments from the news media on whether to unseal recent documents related to the chandra levy case. ingmar guandique was convicted of killing levy in 2010. in the last two months, the presiding judge held two meeting with the prosecution and the defense over an issue with the trial witness. but he sealed most of
. >> great family, unfortunately. tragic, tragic. >> angela willard, start add photography blog of her own, called eyes of a child, filled with sweet images of her kids. when her youngest was four, she wrote i want to remember everything about every moment. but not this one. even the seasoned first responders who found the little girls inside are having trouble dealing with this one. >> we have known each other for six, seven years. >> now vicki younger who met chrisie is spearheading fund raising efforts to replace some of what's lost. >> if someone needs help, we are all there together. if there's births in the family, deaths in the family, we all come together. >> a group she belongs to, called fit for life boot camp, started an online fund raising drive on a website called, give forward. donations topped $25,000 in less than 24 hours. friends are trying to replace everything for the family that lost everything. someone has donated a storage unit, which is already bursting at the seams with furniture and household items. younger has gotten the chick- fil-a in frederick to host a hug
of a girl shot. take a listen to what angela blake had to say about her child. >> i cannot believe this. this is ridiculous. my child was a very sweet child and to go on such a senseless manner, it makes no sense. >> how are urban centers like philadelphia, chicago, are they missing out on the conversation, the gun violence conversation that's being had in washington, d.c. as we focus on the magazine clips and assault weapons, when it's a harder fact as you pointed out that there is urban gun violence that happens every day in our cities. >> yeah, i mean the thing about hospitals, we're uniquely positioned to understand this issue. i think one of the things that is removed from this debate is a true understanding of the consequences of gun violence. and rarely is it the case that the folks that are talking about this have actually been in the room to see a young person look up at them and say, please save me, i don't want to die. then to have to go out and tell the family like this young woman's family, that the person they love the most is not coming home to them. i think if we had a b
of the congress has never even debated immigration reform. let's talk with the angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst. it is kind of interesting, both the president and the congress seem to be interested in getting immigration reform done. >> yes. jon: the question is, what are they going to do with it and there are not a lot of experienced hands on the topic. >> instead of talking about experienced hands, being a former lobbyist they have staffers that are have specialty on immigration law. they can counsel members of the congress and leaders in the party can educate the members the. the challenge the president wants to push it through quickly for political gain. you have members of congress who want to push it through slowly to educate these members on what needs to be done. jon: for instance, marco rubio, the republican senator from florida who has been a leading voice on it from the republican side he has said what the president has put forward is dead on arrival as far as he's concerned when it comes to the senate. >> just like in 2007 when you have the mccain-kennedy bill and then you h
or accept responsibility? here to debate this, fox news contributor angela mcglowan and democratic strategist maxwell. angela, i will start with you. is this really fair for him for him to be pushing the blame on quote unquote washington when he has been in the white house for four years. >> that's president obama. that's what he does. they pass the buck. instead of taking responsibility. the same old same old. he will blame washington, d.c. isn't he a part of d.c. >> he is a part of d.c. he is not the only one there he can't pass laws. we are talking about an economic recovery. we need to be looking at the people that can actually pass law in order to get that. >> zerlina he can't pass laws when nancy pelosi was speaker. she enacted all of his proposals. that's the president. he has lobbists that go to capitol hill and propose legislation, but harry reid hasn't even passed a budget. >> zerlina i want to bring this up too. a graphic in january the unemployment rate ticked up up to 7.9%. how long is it going to take for americans really to start feeling fed up with all of this espec

. [applause] thank you for the introduction, angela. i would like to point out that this is her first responsibility and job as host of these luncheons. [applause] recently it was asked whether or not i missed the congress. i said yes, but not particularly this one. pointing out that even though i am long forgotten as a candidate, i might actually have an address with 1600 on it, although it is 1600 eiger street. [laughter] there were times when january 3, when an amendment was offered to the fiscal cliff legislation. two years ago, he would've told me that i be standing before you and talking about the film and television industry, i would be asking what you were doing. i would not assume i be in this position. the last movie that i saw was the heffalump movie with my children. i must tell you that the last two years have been very interesting. my friend dan glickman, he spent several years at the nmpaa. there are a number of people here in the audience who are with the motion picture association. educating me about the industry and what we can do to help. i am grateful to them for s
? >> >> angela. >> you said 45 million work hours, what does that equate in terms of the number of jobs and is this layoffs or do it through attrition? >> it equates to 22,500 jobs. right now, the postal service, we run in excess of 10% overtime, almost 12% and we have not hired and using attrition to take advantage of people leaving without having to resort to layoffs. by eliminating overtime and looking at some flexibility we have with the part-time work force and potentially working with the unions on some this will help. since the year 2000, the postal service has reduced approximately 306,000 jobs, people, new layoffs. we do not want to lay off. we are a responsible employer. yes, sir? >> just to follow up on her question, nuts and bolts, 22,500 jobs, how many people get laid off or bought out when? and the second question is in the back of your folder here, you have daily revenue and daily out-go and the revenue exceeds the out-go. so -- >> the revenue doesn't exceed the out-go. $15.9 billion last year. >> not according to your own handout. my question is, where's the difference?
in the eight months you have been in office. that is a good thing for europe and citizens. angela merkel is no longer the ceo of merkel limited. if you need a balanced approach to compromise. we have a growth fact in order to counter blind austerity measures. we now need to flesh out this pact to create jobs. because of unemployment is extraordinary. you have made an agreement to a banking union with mrs. merkel. now the department will have to decide on the same thing in the next few weeks. social europe still exists. our commitment has been taken to reinforce the eurozone. we need specific measures. these are real projects. europe finds itself still in crisis. the socialist and democratic groups and the european parliament has been fighting with austerity overdoses four months. two years ago we suggested removing certain types of investment from the balanced budget role in calculations. nothing happens. we rejected that idea. we have recessions. we have unemployment skyrocketing. we do not want any more of this austerity. we need to give the european economy a breath of oxygen and fres
